Call of Duty Shakeup - Call of Duty 2020 is Another Black Ops and Is Modern Warfare 4 Going Free-to-Play?

Reports include talk of arguments between Sledgehammer and Raven.

There are reported some massive changes happening behind the scenes of the Call of Duty franchise. According to a new report from Jason Schreier of Kotaku, Call of Duty 2020 is no longer being developed by Sledgehammer and Raven. It will instead be handled by Treyarch and it will be another entry in the Black Ops saga.

This is the first major change in the development cycle of the Call of Duty franchise since 2012. Since then, the Call of Duty games have cycled between three lead studios. Those studios...
 

Bungie Brings Back the Nerf Gun on Fan-Favorite Destiny 2 Weapons

Old Bungie is back.

Around the release of the Curse of Osiris update for Destiny 2, Bungie had vowed to take a drastically different approach to how they handle community favored weapons in the game. Old Bungie would have nerfed those weapons into the ground without a second thought.

But new Bungie? New Bungie said that they wanted to instead buff up other weapons to make them more attractive choices. This was a part of their "Go Fast Update" initiative. Specifically, here is what they said in all capital letters for some weird reason (via Game Rant).

Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

Incredible from start to finish.

Every once in a while there comes a new game release that defies all expectations. A Plague Tale: Innocence is one such game. Thanks to a delicate balance of satisfying gameplay and an engaging story, A Plague Tale will sink its hooks into you right from its opening chapters. Though there are a couple of small missteps along the way, the journey you share with siblings Amicia and Hugo is one you really don't want to miss.

There are many more review "buzz words" I could use to describe A Plague Tale, but I will spare you from...
 

New Final Fantasy VII Remake Teaser

Just watch it.

A new teaser trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake was finally shown off today. It's the first one shown off in, I think, over a year. It's not much but maybe it'll be enough until we hear and see more this June. ...

  • Weapon Skins Coming to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds; Region Lock System Being Considered

    Right now, those trying out the PlayerUnknown's Battleground's test server have access to various weapon skins. Soon, that update will be released to the live server and then everyone will have access to a variety of skins.

    Perhaps the biggest takeaway from today's announcement is that the PUBG team is considering what sounds like a soft region lock for some locations.
    We are always working towards improving the gameplay environment. This includes providing stable network experience for our players. You all know that we have implemented ping based matchmaking system that has shown great results but we didn't want to stop there.

    One of the solutions we are considering is operating servers so that only those players who reside

  • System Shock Reboot Project is Back In Development, Targeting Early 2020 Release

    The System Shock reboot/remaster/remake is back in active development, according to a report from PC Gamer. This is rather noteworthy because the last we knew, development was halted after they apparently ran out of funding. It was also a matter that the team felt they had diverted too far from the original vision of what they had hoped to accomplish with the remake.

    How will things differ now? For starters, Nightdive CEO Stephen Kick said that they are shifting their focus back to what they first established with the Unity demo back in 2016. It doesn't mean that the game is going to switch away from using Unreal...

  • First Look at New Playerunknown's Battlegrounds' Island Map Shared in Anniversary Video

    This past week, the lead developers of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds shared a "thank you" to the community that got them where they are today. That place? Probably piled floor to ceiling in money, but it's also a place where they can comfortably talk about what's in store for the still popular battle royale style game. Though the community can be a downright cesspool at the best of times, that hasn't seem to stopped the ongoing development of the game. PlayerUnknown himself, Brendan Greene, thanked the ever-raging community for their support while saying that their fans are "passionate" when they provide what is often nothing more than h...

  • A Way Out Released via EA Originals Program

    A Way Out Released via EA Originals Program

    The Hazelight Studios developed co-op game, A Way Out, was released yesterday as part of the EA Originals program. For just $29.99 (USD), you and a co-op partner can play through a daring escape on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Origin for PC.

    Keep in mind that you only need to purchase one copy of the game between the two of you! I'm not just talking about couch co-op either, which this game has. This ability to play co-op on just one copy of the game extends to all platforms.

    Metro Exodus will be First PC Game to Use Real Time Ray Tracing Technology

    During a GDC 2018 tech demo of Metro Exodus, developer 4A Games said that it will be the first game to make use of Nvidia's new RTX real-time ray tracing technology.

    If it's anything like the demos we've already seen at GDC this week, I wouldn't get my hopes up too high for this being something most people will be able to fully enjoy until years from now.
